“When I first started out as an entertainer, I was doing what I wanted to do ---performing in and around the northeastern United States, Syracuse, upstate New York, Canada, and New York City. My life changed when the leader of Cameo called and asked me to join his group in the studio in midtown Manhattan to record with them on their first album. I was there in a flash!
I soon learned it was the business side of music I had to concentrate on if I was going to attain true success and decided to apply to law school. I chose a nearly unheard of discipline: entertainment law. My father, who was also a lawyer, asked me“what are you thinking?” Entertainment law was new territory, but choosing that path was the best move I’ve ever made.
I still perform and write but today my focus is on sharing the information I’ve learned (and continue to learn every day through my ongoing educational efforts) with my students and clients -- reminding them 'every time the music gets played, somebody gets paid' and what it takes to get paid and stay in the music business.”
